The Society of Architectural Historians’ prestigious H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship will be offered for 2022 and will allow a recent graduate or emerging scholar to study by travel for a period of three, six or twelve months. In response to the uncertainty of travel and to broaden the accessibility to applicants who may not be able to take a full year of travel, for whatever reason, the Society is amending the proposal requirements for the 2022 awards to include partial-year itineraries.
The fellowship is not for the purpose of doing research for an advanced academic degree or publication. Instead, Professor Brooks intended the recipient to study by travel and contemplation while observing, reading, writing, photographing, or sketching. The goal of the fellowship is to provide an opportunity for a recent graduate with an advanced degree or an emerging scholar to:
- see and experience architecture and landscapes firsthand
- think about their profession deeply
- acquire knowledge useful for the recipient’s future work, contribution to their profession, and contribution to society
The fellowship recipient may travel to any country or countries during the three-months-to-one-year period. This fellowship is funded by the Society of Architectural Historians’ H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship Fund.
The H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship will cover expenses incurred by the Brooks Fellow for three months to one year of travel. The 2022 award(s) will range from $15,000 (three-month award), $30,000 (six-month award) to $60,000 (one-year award). The award is non-renewable; award amounts may vary from year to year. The award will be paid in quarterly installments. SAH suggests that if additional financial support is needed to cover other related expenses, that the applicants contact their respective university/college, academic adviser, department head, employer or outside foundations to investigate the financial opportunities afforded them.
